A possible solution to this is if a person is 70% comfortable in the decision then they are 100% committed to the decision. Also, if the team is unable to reach a decision then the team will seek the assistance of an upper management member (p.173.175).Leadership driven is a decision-making process where the leadership is responsible for making the decision.
